I saw this in real time as well! Truly out of place on this truly terrible show... (it really is an awful programme; why was I watching it?...)

I think I'm okay; perhaps everyone has given up on all this collecting lark! (chuckle )

[Not that your interested I'm sure...] but I've just been tiding up arrangements regarding attendance at ADC event in Moreton. I enjoyed myself more than I expected last year; so hopefully this year should be as interesting & enjoyable.

More artists; more books; and at least I know where I'm going this time! Pieter appears to be doing his talk on Tolkien signatures on the Sunday (morning?; nobody seems sure!); and I'm looking forward to that (as long as it is in the morning & I'm still there.) Balance seems to have shifted (ever so slightly) towards the centre ground in the ART:BOOKS balance! (or perhaps not...)

If anyone is interested in meeting up (in whatever capacity book collectors meet up!), be happy to put a face to a (ebay; TCG; real!) name.

It was actually on the BBC news (on the TV) as well! Although, it made no mention of the source of the donation; or of 'Tolkien'. It did have footage of Shelley's handwritten manuscript though; as well as a Gutenberg Bible and a Shakespeare Folio etc.

The visual content, including documentary footage of Tolkien, was of great interest; even if the actual content of the programme (as you state) covered 'the same ground' as most documentaries.

The BBC documentary Tolkien in Oxford seemed to provide most of the footage. According to Hammond & Scull in C&G a portion of an interview done on that occasion is included in J.R.R. Tolkien: An Audio Portrait [and A Film Portrait of J.R.R. Tolkien], and has appeared in other documentaries about Tolkien. However the footage of some of the Tolkien in Oxford documentary, like Tolkien drinking, was new to me too!

In addition to footage from Tolkien in Oxford, there was also (earlier?) footage from The Bookstand. Although Tolkien didn't say much (in the question about the polarisation of characters to good or evil, he literally looks at the guy and says nothing! -quite amusing.) I'd never seen this footage either. In fact I don't see any mention of it in C&G at all in the Recordings entry! Had you seen (or even heard of) this interview Deagol?

Hammond & Scull state that other recordings made by the BBC of Tolkien's voice or image appear not to have been preserved. I'm guessing The Bookstand was also by the BBC(?) though. Footage just seems to keep coming up in the most (generally) worthless programmes!

Well worth watching...
